The nugget I wanted to share with you was a sign that Elisabeth Elliot had up right behind her typewriter. My daughter and I had the thrill of a lifetime as we were invited in August to come up and stay with Elisabeth and her husband. You can read prior blogs on that, but I have so many photos that speak a thousand words with you. She is a great hero of the faith that has endured much in her life. You can read about her at www.elisabethelliot.org.
Here is the sign she had behind her typewriter; it's from a poem by Amy Carmichael whom Elisabeth never met, but greatly admired (She wrote her biography, A Chance to Die):
There was a black and white photo of Amy holding on of the hundreds of Indian children she was mother to in a ministry she started in India. She saved hundreds of Indian children from Hindu temple prostitution. She dedicated decades of her life to it. What heroes of the faith both Amy and Elisabeth were and are!
More next time, it's back to work, but I always have time to pray for you. Keep reading!
